Amos Farnsworth is replying to Maria Weston Chapman's note in regards to the Liberty Bell and encloses $15. Farnsworth writes: "I can hardly imagine how you will pass your time in France. Lamartine & his coadjutors have already brought all to a level there. No slavery, no higher, no lower." Even the "confounded woman question" need not be urged, as women there "play so conspicuous a part in the business & politics of the nation."
